NO DEVELOPMENTS
IN SUICIDE CASE
Coroner Weenis lnquest Uunecessairy;

Father
SVICiI)E RE3IAINS ONLY THEORY
There were no new developments
yesterday in connection with the sui-
Stide of Clyde Berkey, '17E, who as-j
phyxiated himself in his room Monday
night.
The coroner deemed no inquest nc-
essary, and the body was taken to the
undertaking rooms yesterday morning,
where it awaits the arrival of the de-I
ceased's father, who is expected to
reach Ann Arbor this morning from
Claremont, N. H.
No motive for the tragedy has been
discovered. The uncle of the deceased.
who resides in Detroit, was unable to
believe that his nephew committed sui-
cide, but the authorities see no room
for any other theory.
Assistant Dean Butts, of the engi-
neering department, was unable to un-
earth any reasonable motive for the
act. He suggested "atmospheric influ-
ence," which was the cause given by
a leading Philadelphia physician for
the three suicides at the University of,
Pennsylvania two weeks ago.t

Oaths Deferred at Council Meeting
Last Night; Consider
Petition
New student councilmen presented
their credentials at the meeting of the
council last night, but were not sworn
in because a council constitution, with
the oath of office embodied in it, was
not at hand. Consequently the oath
of office will be taken at the next meet-
ing.
The petition of the freshman archi-
'tects to wear a distinctive department-
al color of orange and black, to distin-
guish themselves from the rest of the
engineering department, was put into
the hands of a committee consisting
of Herman Thrum, '14, and Allan T.
Ricketts, '15E, for investigation. Noth-
ing definitte was done regarding the
proposed changes in the council or-
ganization, but after some discussion,
it was decided to postpone final action
until the opinion of the faculty has
been obtained.
It was decided to open all meetings
at 7:30 o'clock in the future.

house, and no pledging can be done
outside of Ann Arbor. After the adop-
tion of these rules, the minority asked
to be allowed to submit its draft to the
faculty, along with the other rules, but
this permission was refused.
Copies of the rules, the new consti-
tution and the minutes of the last four
meetings are now being printed, and
will be sent out to each fraternity and
to the University Senate.

Varsity Baseball Manager War'er
Emmons issued a call yesterday for
sophomores who intend to try for the
assistant baseball managerships. He.
asks that they report before February,
21, and after this date no names will
be accepted. The present assistant
managers will have charge of the en-
rolling of the sophomores, and will be
present for this purpose at Waterman
gymnasium each afternoon at 1:00
o'clock. It is expected that a large
number of second-year men will try
out for the positions.

asked that every man available for the
pitching and catching departments re-
port today for work.
Pitchers and catchers, to the num-
ber of a dozen, responded to the first
call for men, and the first practice of
the season was held yesterday. The
work was light in nature, but it is
expected that as the men condition
themselves, it will be gradually in-
crea ed. The cage has not been hung
as yet, but it will be in place when
the harder work makes protection nec-
essa ry.
While one veteran pitcher did not
report yesterday, he is expected to turn
out for practice within a few days,
when the hurling department will .be
complete so far as the old men ar@
concerned. In addition, several young-
sters have donned uniforms, insuring
keen competition for places.
In the catching department, Rogers,
the mainstay of last season until he
broke 'his leg, is not eligible for com-
petition, while Webber has left college.
Baer of last year's squad, and Hippler
are both available, however, and it is
not expected the receiving department
will be weak. Wyman, another good
catcher, has also reported for work.
Quaintance, Baribeau, Davidson
and Metcalf of last season's squad are
the pitchers who worked out yester-
day. While the last two did not get
into a Varsity game last season, they
showed themselves performers of fair'
ability, and are expected to make plac-
es for themselves this year. Ferguson,
fresh law pitcher last year, will also
be available.
The general call for candidates will
not be issued, it is believed, for a
week or more.
